“It was an amazing night!! I was so shocked and delighted at the same time couldn’t sleep that night!! Every single person; ranging from GP partners, GPs, trainees, advanced nurse practitioners, physician associates, paramedic and clinical pharmacist, practice nurses, assistant practitioner, healthcare assistants, administration and reception staff at Darwen Healthcare have all worked very hard and their dedication and hard work has paid off.
